. texas already has. i think the highest rate of uninsured people are in texas. the answer from the left, i don't have an answer. people aren't in the streets protesting a lot of things they should be protesting but this is a situation where these are poor working poor people, they are busy. this is something they haven't gotten yet so it's not exactly being taken away from them. >> i just feel the pendulum has swung so far in the wrong direction in terms of the debate over this. we are talking about the governors that have said they're opting out of this, they have 29% of the total americans without health insurance in this country. the idea that not only are they not apologizing for this decision, but that they feel like they can sort of go out like yosemite sam with guns blazing and say this is equivalent to the titanic or the gestapo is shocking. >> it really is. i think we should say it simply. people are going to die because rick perry wants to run for president again or governors want to pander to the tea party. that's what's going to happen here. you have very poor people who are
that means is if you have a state, let's take texas, for example, where six million texans are uninsured, highest rate in the country. a quarter of their residents don't have health insurance. if they went with the affordable care act and expanded medicaid coverage up to 133%, it would cover 2 million more texans, 2 million, and for the first years, it would be 100% of the federal government expense. going forward, it would be at 90% of federal government expense. so texas decides in their texas way that they do sometimes that they're not going to go with the program. those 2 million people won't be insured and yet they won't qualify for the subsidies in the affordable care act to help them be able to afford insurance on their own. so we'll literally have a situation where the poorest people, the people in the most need, will be totally left out in the cold. bobby jindal has already said in louisiana that he is not, in his state, going to go with the medicaid expansion, and you can imagine that a lot of these republicans are going to make this a litmus issue so that any republican who ha
, there is no fee. >> texas governor rick perry is the latest to reject the affordable care act. they want to stall or stop carrying out the requirements all together, calling it socialized medicine this will bankrupt his state. >> the bottom line is that medicaid is a failed program. to expand this program is not unlike adding 1,000 people to the titanic. >> there is a bottom line question. what does it mean to people who live in states like texas. msnbc's richard louie. >> more than half of the country's states who wanted to stop the affordable care act. even though the land's highest court upheld the law, in addition to the six governor, the brock o brookings institutions said they are refusing to execute the law. governor perry's refusal means 1.4 million people will not for now. on average, a person in this group i was showing you makes from around $3,000 a year up to just under $15,000. these are the poorest living on 26 to 133% of the poverty line and in addition rejecting medicaid, some are rejecting creating their own insurance exchanging, another of the law's requirements. these are desig

't eligible for medicaid. texas, the they only cover adults at 26% of the poverty line. it's $11,170 a year. so you could be a single person making $3,000 a year and you're not poor enough to qualify for medicaid. that's part of the reason texas has the highest uninsured rate in the entire nation. in massachusetts, by contrast, they cover working adults up to 133% of the poverty level. this is due to a former governor whose name rhymed with smitt sromney. everyone making up to 133% of the poverty line, they get medicaid automatically. right now, the federal government pays about 57% of medicaid's costs. states pick up the rest. and that's a good enough deal that every single state participates. in the affordable care act for the first three acts, the feds will cover 100% of the difference between wherever the state is now and where the law wants them to go 100%. after 2020, that drops a bit, but only drops to 90%. for every dollar the state puts in, the feds will put in $9. it's an incredible deal. the less you have been doing on medicaid so far, the more the federal government will pay on
